Desert City Soundtrack

2009-04-11 14:54:18 UTC
On Perfect Addiction, Desert City Soundtrack continue to hone a sound with surprising flourishes and a refreshing lack of mainstream mongering. With Cory Gray's oft-gelid ivory still at the fore, Perfect Addiction lessens the aural anguish prominent on 2003's Funeral Car. Other than the feedbacked furor and the muscular pulse of Brian Wright's drums ending No Signal, much of the CD's twelve tracks sigh with a brooding air. However, under words conjuring deathly imagery, crippling dependencies and an overall inability to cope, the hectoring ghosts of Desert City Soundtrack's past aren't completely forgotten. Playing The Martyr strikes a worthy balance between lilt and haste. A song like the stormy, seafaring Whatever The Cost contrasts sonically and emotionally with a frail composition like First Sickness. This Portland trio can migrate from the simple balladry of Last Night's Floor to a suspensefully abrasive string session like Good Times Without. Like a Sundance film dealing with mortality and everyday ennui that's produced by Jerry Bruckheimer, Desert City Soundtrack maintain their mastery of sad sonancy by loudly dealing with inner demons that refuse to die. It's a disquieting journey that's ultimately good for the soul. - Journal Review Desert City Soundtrack are Cory Gray (Vocals, Piano, Bass, Trumpet), Matt Carrillo (Vocals, Guitar), Brian Wright (Drums, Percussion, Organ).The band resides in Portland, Oregon. ------------ ( Although I personally like all of their releases, I still think "Perfect Addiction" would be one brilliant start. ) ------------ desert-city-soundtrack-funeral-car Artist - Desert City Soundtrack Album - Funeral Car Release Date - 2003 Genre - Piano base Indie-rock, Alternative Tracklist 01 My Hell 02 Drowning Horses 03 Drawn and Quartered 04 Dying Dawn 05 Take You Under 06 These Games We Play 07 Second Sickness 08 Fields Landing 09 Casket 10 Something About a Ghost 11 Traction and Temperature 12 Westpoint Desert City Soundtrack - Funeral Car Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- desert-city-soundtrack-perfect-addiction Artist - Desert City Soundtrack Album - Perfect Addiction ( * * * * * ) Release Date - 2005 Genre - Piano base Indie-rock, Alternative Tracklist 01 Last Night's Floor 02 Let's Throw Knives 03 Playing the Martyr 04 No Signal 05 Whatever the Cost 06 Batteries 07 First Sickness 08 Mothball Fleet (Counterattack) 09 Good Times Without 10 It's Not That Bad 11 Watering Hole 12 The Dining Dead Desert City Soundtrack - Perfect Addiction Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- desert-city-soundtrack-contents-of-distraction Artist - Desert City Soundtrack Album - Contents of Distraction Release Date - 2002 Genre - Piano base Indie-rock, Alternative Tracklist 1 What to Do in Case of Fire 3:40 2 Widow's Staircase 4:35 3 Sleeperhold 4:35 4 Murder Hearts 6:20 5 Cardboard Hill 5:14 6 Foglifter 4:28 7 Untitled 1:17 Desert City Soundtrack - Contents of Distraction Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- desert-city-soundtrack-settlefish-sounds-like-violence-split Artist - Desert City Soundtrack / Settlefish / Sounds Like Violence Album - Split Release Date - 2004 Genre - Piano base Indie-rock, Alternative Tracklist 1 Sounds Like Violence - I Push You Up the Stairs 2 Settlefish - Curse Loosely 3 Desert City Soundtrack - Send Your Soldiers to Do Your Killing 4 Settlefish - Who Placed the Dots on Dyslexia? 5 Desert City Soundtrack - January's Loss 6 Settlefish - Glass Party Desert City Soundtrack - Split Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Artist - Desert City Soundtrack Album - Home Recordings Release Date - Genre - Piano base Indie-rock, Alternative Tracklist Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Christmas Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Cliches Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Collapse Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Covered (In) Security Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Despite All Previous Attempts Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Devilwings Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Homeless Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Life Is Fading Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - May Or Never Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - My Desing Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Oncelifted Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Supernovas Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings - Thermostat Desert City Soundtrack-Home Recordings-Washed Up Desert City Soundtrack - Home Recordings Password - SirensSound.blogspot.com ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Recommendations: Mimas - The Worries The Low Frequency in Stereo KEjNU The Observatory Camera 237 - Inspiration Is Not Here ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- Thanks ROBB23 -----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Review of "Burial Songs" by Palehorse/Palerider

In order to excel in the independent music industry, an act has to define itself as especially unique with a sound quite unlike anything else in the community. This is a tall order, one that isn’t easily filled by acts entering variations of rock music due to the immense amount of bands flooding the scene right now. Palehorse/Palerider, a “doomgaze” trio from Denver, has released an EP entitled ‘Burial Songs’ that does a surprisingly superb job at separating itself from the pack. Let’s delve into it.

Review for "I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear" by Voices from Deep Below

Even though the independent rock scene is quite inundated with new acts, there’s always a welcome place for an outfit that changes the formula enough to be consistently interesting and worth taking notice of. The New York-based alternative rock group Voices from Deep Below attempts to do just that, fusing together a variety of styles into a surprisingly coherent sound. Their new record, “I Want to Stand Where the Sun Himself Shakes with Fear”, is a five song album that navigates alt-rock, experimental, and borderline metal and progressive influences all at the same time.
